Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Readers of John Gray's previous bestsellers, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, What Your Mother Couldn't Tell You and What Your Father Didn't Know, and Mars and Venus in the Bedroom, will be inspired, informed and touched by this collection of first-person stories that illustrate how couples have successfully put his principles to work in their own lives to create fulfilling, long-lasting relationships.

Through his bestselling books, his national seminars and his infomercial, which reaches 90 million cable television homes across the United States, Gray has brought a powerful message to millions of people. He explains how better communication and recognition of men's and women's different emotional needs lead to greater intimacy. In Mars and Venus in Love, we see his principles in action through stories told by people who, using his advice and counsel, have created fulfilling, healthy and loving relationships. We will recognize ourselves and our partners in the funny and poignant scenes depicted in these stories, each accompanied by John Gray's commentary.

After the incredible response to his work, Gray thought the successes of some couples might inspire other like them. With that in mind, he asked readers who were willing to share their stories to write in with the answers to such questions as: What kind of problems have you had in your relationship and how have you overcome them? What kinds of special things do you and your partner do for each other? How do you best communicate with each other? How do you practice what you've learned? How does your love feel different now from how it felt before?

This is a book of love stories -- a collection of true-life tales that will show you something about your own love story that may have eluded you for a long time. A few insights, techniques and changes in habits of mind and body nourish love and make it grow, and like little one-act plays these stories show you how. Mars and Venus in Love gives you the opportunity to see yourself in the stories of others and to recognize your own communication and behavior patterns in the circumstances they describe. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on November 12, 2000
Format: Audio Cassette
If you liked John Gray's book, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, you may enjoy hearing these stories of how the ideas in that book were used by couples who attended his seminars and did counseling sessions with him. A primary benefit appears to have been providing a couple with a common language about their communication needs. The ideas will have more power after hearing how someone else reacted to and used them. These reactions are in the form of letters that are read by John Gray in this audio cassette version.
If the concepts in that book are ones that you do not agree with, or already have full power for you, you can probably skip this audio cassette.
I found John Gray to be a below average reader to listen to, and was tired of his voice before the cassettes were over. He made no attempt to shift his voice from his usual one as he read each of the letters, and listening became monotonous. An actor would have dramatized and differentiated them a bit to make for more interesting listening. Having a man read a woman's letter in a male voice is also fairly uninteresting.
The words would have had much more meaning and impact if they had been read by the person who wrote each letter. Then the nuances and emotions the person felt would have come through better.
John Gray's ideas about how to improve marital communication are pretty simple, and this abridged version could have been even more abridged. The two primary concepts [(1) of men listening to women without suggesting solutions and (2) women letting men have quiet time] are repeated in almost each one.
If your relationship needs work, I suggest Relationship Rescue and the Workbook that can be used with it as a starting point. I think you will get more benefit from those than from this audio cassette.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is filled with testimonials for John Gray's approach to relationship development and enhancement. The overriding theme is essentially, "And then I read Dr. Gray's book" (or, preferably, "attended my first seminar") "and my live was changed forever." There are a few allusions to the specifics of his theories, but basically the jargon is used and the reader is assumed to be familiar with the subject already. The book has been marketed as a collection of real-life experiences of ordinary couples, with many of whom the reader should be able to identify, but this is not the case at all. It is a glowing "puff piece" which reads as if it had been drawn from the evaluation forms submitted by couples at the end of his seminars. I am not disputing the significance of Dr. Gray's insights and presentation in the slightest, just the thrust of this book.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have read dozens of self-help/relationship books and have found John Gray's philosophies to be the most straight-forward, accurate and effective. His descriptions of men and women and their differences in behavior and response are dead-on, as is Dr. Gray's belief that understanding those differences is the only way to truly get along. Dr. Gray's books will help you and your mate see that you are BOTH "normal" in your behaviors and responses, even though you may seem irrational or unreasonable to one another at times. Dr. Gray will help you see that boys and girls are just plain different and as soon as you realize what that means in a relationship, trust me, you will breathe a HUGE sigh of relief and give your mate the biggest kiss ever!

I completely agree with the previous review that this book is nothing but a John Gray advertisement. I didn't even make it to the second chapter. After I got annoyed with "John Gray does this...", and "John helped me with that...", I thumbed through the rest of the book and saw his name repeatedly on every page! I was looking for good relationship stories and maybe some advice and inspiration, instead I got the printed version of Mr. Gray's infomercial.

i am so satisfied with this purchase. i originally bought this for my husband, who was in prison at the time. i sent him a copy and i bought one for myself. this book brought a lot of positive thoughts to both of us. reading through these story really helped us through this difficult time. consequently, both my husband and i were intrigued by the dr. john grey's work and went on to read "men are from mars, women are from Venus" and its really helped us with our communication skills.
